Is it bad to sleep with wet hair? I tend to do that a lot cause it gets all really curly when i do that, and when i just let it dry naturally too, but the curls aren't as big. But if i blow dry them they are just frizzy w/ a lot of volume at the sides. So I then flat iron it and put volumizing mouse just in the roots at the top of my head, not the sides. I blow dry it when i have a shower in the morning and wet it right before i go to bed. But I like my curls because I get lots of compliments on them.

I think it would be bad because your hair might tear easier since its wet. What I would suggest is that you braid your hair. That would help so that it doesn't get damaged and it gives you a nice curl to your hair.

What if you let them dry on their own in the morning?? Then maybe at night just put it up in a pony? Posted Image

I always let my hair dry while I sleep. My hair is really curly and if I blow dry it or let it dry in the morning it gets pulled straight and is all frizzy. I've been doing it for years and I've never had any problems

Same here. I usually try to let it finish air drying before I lay down on it but it takes it for-EVER to dry! I don't understand why because I don't have that much hair but for some reason it retains water like mad.

I have curly hair too and I sleep with it wet. If I blow dry it, it gets frizzy and huge. I have to wash my hair at night because I have to be at work by 7:00 am. I can never wake up early enough to wash my hair in the morning. Posted Image

Yeah, I remember my mom always telling me to not go to sleep with a wet head because i'd get a head cold.

If I take a shower late, I'll let my hair air-dry a bit then put it in a high bun overnight. In the morning when I take it down, I have really nice waves and no frizz.

I always sleep with my hair wet. I shower at night, tie my hair up into a bun, and in the morning its lightly damp and much easier and faster to blow dry!

Back when I had long hair I would go to bed with it wet every night and it always looked fine (and no head colds!). It took FOREVER to dry back then so I just let it dry overnight. Plus it was long and heavy enough that it was always straight when I woke up. When it was down to my waist it was a little thin at the ends, but when I cut it to half-way down my back and kept it trimmed it always looked healthy, so I don't think sleeping with wet hair hurt it. hehe, my hair was much more of a "wash and go" style when it was long than it is now -- now that it's shorter (shoulder-length) it's much wavier, so if I want it to look good I have to shower every morning and blowdry it!

I'd do it except i'd just be afraid of getting a cold. I suppose if you leave it air-dry for a while before going to bed it cant be that bad.

i always sleep with my hair wet, because i too get nice curls that way. as long as you dont have a window open, or your room isnt ice cold, you shouldnt get a cold.
